Putting micropython on an m5stack with 4M of PSRAM

Post by Abraxas » Thu May 17, 2018 6:38 pm

I recently bought a M5Stack with 4M of PSRAM and a MPU9250 9DOF sensor (see the link below for more info on the board).

I would like to put micropython on it but am unsure of where to go to do this. I can use either a Windows machine or a Mac (I prefer Mac) so instructions would need to be step by step for either of those machines.

Thanks in advance.

The official MicroPython port for ESP32 does not support PSRAM. It will run, but you won't get the benefit of the extra RAM. Installation instructions may be found here along with the firmware images.

For PSRAM support you need the Loboris port which is supported on this forum.
